Safeguarding at Reading FC

Reading FC recognises that the safety and protection of children and young people engaged in club activities must take priority over all other considerations.

Reading FC is committed to creating opportunities for adults with disabilities and mental health issues to participate in a broad spectrum of activities at the club and at the same time develop a safe culture for all participants.
